Are the solutions of the past still viable today, especially in face of technological advances of post-modern societies such as the internet? I’m interested in how urban environments, architectural and transportation concepts can be made more responsive to the needs of its current inhabitants. How cities can become more useful, sustainable and flexible. But: Growth and prosperity are limited more than ever. Cities will have to adjust to this. How will this affect the city’s surfaces in the future? Start to imagine!
Mario Lombardo asks: What should the surface of a city look like?
Shauna Richardson answers: My relationship with the city lies in sharing unusual and thought provoking experiences with it’s inhabitants.
I am most interested in the transformations that can take place in a city via interaction on a personal level.
It’s not so easy to view with open eyes and mind things that are familiar. Sometimes it takes a blatant intervention to agitate and illuminate less tended parts of the brain. Unpredictable, exciting, creative and an inexhaustible source of inspiration, sometimes we need a nudge to remind us, but it’s all there, just waiting to break the surface.
